Very original rust free and unmolested early production California wire wheel car, build date January 1969.
I purchased the car in 2002 when I was living in California and stored it in the back of my workshop, I imported it into the UK last year after moving back here.
These early cars are becoming highly desirable and being a very early USA export car it has very few differences from the home market version, these being, Stromberg carbs, compression ratio, and longer (deeper) bumper brackets which are easily altered to home market specs.
The car was stored off road for 30 years and at some point the cylinder head was removed, rebuilt but never reinstalled. I have installed the rebuilt cylinder head, replaced the rear silencer which had rotted through with a new mild steel one. I have replaced the water pump and the rotted original cooling hoses with the correct original style green hoses and wire clamps.
The engine runs well and the car drives, all hydraulics are working.
I have replaced the rear wheel cylinders, shoes and soft hoses. I have also replaced the rear trailing arm bushes and spring packings with a set of urethane ones.
I have installed 5 brand new Vredestein classic road tires, with new Michelin inner tubes and rim bands.
The frame is rock solid as are the main floors, boot floor, sills, wings, (inner and outer), boot lid, bonnet.
There are a few points of corrosion that need addressing. A section of the battery tray area has corroded through due to acid contamination and requires metal letting in.
There is a small corrosion area to part of the lower LH door skin, again a very small area easily repaired by letting in a piece of metal and some corrosion to the lower portion of the front wings where they cover the sill panels, again very small areas that are easily repaired.
At some point in the past the RH front wing sustained some damage around the head light bucket area, all filler has been removed and some panel work will be required to get it back to the correct shape, although the headlamp bucket is installed.
At present I am continuing to work on the car as time permits, I have ordered a new gearbox cover and rear mount for the gearbox,(now installed)
The car is very original, as far as I can tell most of the original factory Damson paint is hidden under what remains of the the current top coats. The rear bodywork has never been apart and all panel fixings are original and the panel gaps are superb. I have had the front wings off the car to repair a very small hole in the LH sill and to clean out the debris from the areas where the wings overlap the front of the sill panels. All the original factory welding can be seen on the sill reveals.
This is an increasingly rare opportunity to own a very early, very original and solid production TR6 that can be re-commissioned/restored and will retain very nearly 100% of all of its original mechanical parts, down to the nuts and bolts, a very rare thing indeed these days and not something that can be said for many of the restored cars on the market today.
I have now fitted the new gearbox tunnel cover,gearbox mount, new headlights. I will continue to work on the car as time permits.the price may change accordingly.
Please feel free to contact me for more details, and to arrange viewing.
Price reflects a rarely found original car.
Currently the passenger seat is out while I work on the car, I have the original air filter canister also.
I recently purchased the major pieces of an early 150HP injection system which is available by negotiation.
All import fees and duty are paid. Needs an MOT and then can be UK registered. I can likely arrange shipping to parts of Europe especially France for reasonable cost.
This car could be made fit to pass an MOT with a few weekends work.
If you would like me to either MOT/recommission/or restore the car for you I would be happy to do so at very reasonable rates by separate negotiation. All work being done 'in house'.
I have restored several TR's to very high standard for clients over the years.

We recently performed a lot of work on this vehicle, including rebuilding the engine, transmission, all suspension and installing a supercharger. The car is fitted with new tires and has been driven .....

This is probably the most unique TR6 in the world. The paint job is done by the famous Angel Morales and the air bag system raises and lowers it like a true California Low Rider without effecting the posi-traction performance the TR6 offers.It doesn't 'bounce' but the effect is there. THIS CAR IS CHERRY! .....
